Re: that most historic game

"Crosby knew he would want to watch the game later — if his Pirates won — so he hired a company to record Game 7 by kinescope, an early relative of the DVR, filming off a television monitor. The five-reel set, found in December in Crosby’s home, is the only known complete copy of the game, in which Pirates second baseman Bill Mazeroski hit a game-ending home run to beat the Yankees, 10-9. It is considered one of the greatest games ever played."

Re: my Wesleyan Univ tapes comment, the Kent State massacre, Bill Mazeroski, and "this [amazing] shit"

On the day of the Kent State shootings, May 4, 1970, major league baseball played evening games in the eastern time zone. These games would have been played AFTER the shootings. It behooves us to note that Bill Mazeroski played in one of them. Who would have attended? Mazeroski batted 3 for 5 with one RBI that evening. Teammate Roberto Clemente batted 2 for 4 with one RBI. But their Pirates lost to the Atlanta Braves, 5 to 3.

Monday, May 4, 1970, 8:05PM, Atlanta Stadium
Attendance: 7,457
Length of Game: 2:38
